Guys - Need some [H] wisdom on airflow..

Pieced together a new build and I'm curious if any corrections need to be made regarding airflow. Specs are below and my apologies for my horrendous drawings of my current configuration.

Case: Corsair Obsidian 450D
CPU: Intel 7770K - Not overclocked (yet)
KOOLER: Corsair Hydro Series H110I
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaw V Series 3200Mhz
MOBO: Gigabyte Aorus Gaming K7
SSD: Samsung 960 PRO (512)​

FANS:
AF140L - Come with the case and are located on C, D (2 Fans)
AF120L - Comes with the case and is located on E (1 Fan)
SP140L - Comes with the kooler and are located in A, B (2 fans)


Also - thinking about picking up this: https://www.amazon.com/NZXT-Sentry-Performance-Controller-Black/dp/B001E0JH5E (Anyone have this?) and also adding fans on-top as well either as intake or exhaust? There are spaces for 3 x 120mm.

Any advise would be great. First time building a rig with a Rad so I'm making sure I'm doing it right!

Thanks guys and stay [H]ard!

Good to know!

What should I do for the top 3 spots for 120s? Intake or exhaust?
